Today I'm reviewing these little pots of metallic foils by the Born Pretty Store. This set comes with 12 different foils ranging from silver, gold, cool-toned gold and warm-toned bronze. Using this decoration was definitely reminiscent of gold leaf that I used as a kid on art projects. In fact, I'm pretty sure you would be able to buy the same  sort of thing at your local craft stores -- but Born Pretty Store is always the most cost effective option. 

I started off with 2 coats of Embarca-Dare Ya! which I thought would work really well with the warm-toned bronze foil. While the polish was still damp, I used some tweezers to break off chunks of foil and placed them on the tips of my nails. I then gently smoothed down the foil with my other hand being careful not to lift up or break the foil.

I typically never use topcoat on chrome/metallic polishes or nail art decals because the topcoat mutes the mirror finish. 

Be sure to check out the Born Pretty Store for these foils and other great nail art supplies. Use the coupon code BAOQ10 for 10% off your order too (link in the sidebar).
